LG Premieres first 3DTV in the UK this Sunday showcasing live Premiership Football

This Sunday LG and Sky will be bringing 3D to consumers across UK and Ireland, as 9 pubs will be exclusively screening the Premier League showdown between Arsenal and Manchester United in 3D. These selected pubs have been kitted out with the LG 47 inch LD920 3D TV, giving lucky football fans the opportunity to be the first in the world to view the Premier League in 3D. 



These lucky spectators will be getting a sneak preview of the LG LD920 TV before it’s released in April. Consumers will be able to enjoy their favourite 3D movies and video games as well as programming, as Sky launch their dedicated 3D channel in 2010 covering sports, movies and entertainment.

The 47inch LD920 will be the UK’s first 3D TV to be released as part of the LG commitment to making high quality TV more accessible, and this initiative with Sky does just that. Stephen Gater, LG’s head of marketing goes on to say that ‘2010 will see the realisation of many exciting technologies in TVs – 3D is just one of them. With exciting developments like these, watching television in the home will soon be an even more exciting, immersive and powerful experience.’

We will post the names and locations of the pubs taking part when we know more, so keep checking back!
